This dreamlike and evocative piece from Peter Maxwell Davies was originally composed for Flute and orchesta. Here it is presented as Flute with Piano reduction and still captures the wonder and sanctuary of the composer'shome,surrounded by seabirds and seals that fire the imagination in childlike ways, evoking images of mermaids and angels. The Flute solo is both tranquil and highly virtuosic and is well supported by the Piano accompaniment. Thepiecewas first performed in May 1999 at the Royal Concert Hall, Dublin.
